WWGFC AGM and Privegiving was held at SYC on the afternoon and evening of Saturday 1 August 2015.

The AGM was attended by about 30 members and another 30 odd trickled through the door for the prize giving awards ceremony. In reliable fashion the $500 Presidents shout went down a treat and lasted until moments before prize giving commenced. The Appletons lucky draw for those that attend the AGM went to Chris Rathe, she was pleased with the result and I suspect Brett was a happy camper too.

Post prize giving the maiden marlin crew generously conformed to handing up their respective $100 notes for the bar shout, good on ya guys.

Scott worked hard in the kitchen which resulted in a handy feed being offered to the punters.

The full awards list is as per the attached, but in brief it went a bit like this: The monthly snapper draws were hotly completed for with April being the only month that no fish were weighed. The stand out of this lot would have to have been Dave Adams 92cm beast that he caught in December. Dave all entered the mana-driven prestigious 30lb club, as well as taking out the heaviest fish caught for the season for not only WWGFC but nationally between all NZSF associated clubs. This is a tremendous effort and it would be fair to say that all of us live to see the day we land a fish of that size.

$100 monthly marlin draws were won by Trevor Ridley, Brodie Campbell and Anne Campbell. Anne and Logan weren’t able to attend for good reason, but that didn’t stop the Campbell luck from prevailing and Anne may never know that she also shouted the bar with a few drinks, courtesy of Brodie handing up some cash when the tab was running low at the end of the evening.

A number of club records were broken last season by Brian Colville, Steve Parkes, Lewis Hicks, Grant Hamilton, Peter Matherson, Tammpy Plumton, Max Steinbeck, Logan Jones and Poppy Steinbeck and a special mention has to go to small fry angler Tammy Plumpton who amassed four NZ snapper records on 2kg, 8kg and 10kg line weights, with the stand out fish being a 6.806kg snapper caught on 2kg line! This is a huge effort by anyone’s standards and to show what an achievement this was she awarded the most mertitis fish caught for the 2014/15 season.
